 Hello fellow Crafters,

Today I made this ATC; I wanted to use my new stamp called 'Stacked Cups' designed by Roc Nicholas and sold through Stampotique.

I gessoed the ATC card and then coloured it with Neocolors. These are water-soluble wax pastels. I used Cobalt Blue and Emerald Green. I then distressed the edges with a Archival Inkpad in Cobalt blue. I used a little plastic tube to create the white circles. I then stamped the image on white card,  coloured it with alcohol markers and clear embossed it. After cutting it out I went round the cut edges with a black marker so the white card doesn't show it you didn't cut it our perfectly ! I decided to put the image on some gessoed dictionary paper and thought it would be fun to use the bit that explains what tea is. Lastly I used some sticky letters to put the word 'teatime' on.

Thanks for stopping by !

Hope you like it…..


  1. Lovely ATC! The bright colors are beautiful. I have a tendency to collect cup stamps and coffee sayings (not sure why...) so I'm sure I'll be adding this stamp to my collection at some point. :)
